The recently published Ecology article by our group is looking at the fundamental assumption in invasion biology that most invasive species have an advantage in their introduced range relative to their home ranges. Although it is widely assumed that species do better away than at home, this study shows that this is not always the case and a lot of species have similar performance in both introduced and native ranges.
